Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good Shaver Bad Charging station I Have owned two of these. The shaver is good, but replacement parts are hard to come by. However, the charging cleaning station is pure junk. Both of mine have failed at the 6 month point. New cleaning cartridges are expensive. Recommend another Panasonic 5 head shaver of a different series. August 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Great ES I used a Panasonic ES8243 4 blade razor for 6+ years. I shave both my face and head with a electric razor and when my 6 year old razor began taking longer (used about 70% of the charge), I decided to look for a new razor. Based on a lot of reviews I read, I chose the ES-LV81-K razor and am extremely pleased with the results. The shave is a lot closer, a lot quicker and only uses about 10% of the charge. I'd recommend this ES to anyone. August 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best shaver I have been using a Panasonic electric razors for more than 30 years, and recently needed a replacement. This is the first foil head razor, and am very happy with it. I go over the hair once, and it is smooth as can be-- don't have to go over the same spot more than once. Don't know if it is due to the foil head or the 5 shavers, but the after math is terrific. I'm very pleased with the results. Have had it for only three weeks, but if I get the same results after an year, I can truly say that it is the best electric razor I have ever purchased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Been using rotary razors since the 60's Tried screen shavers a 1/2 dozen times, still thought rotary was much better but this razor is pretty dog gone good. I like it. You will too! August 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 A good razor, though it still has problems with longer whiskers. August 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Panasonic ES-LV81-K review I had purchased a similar high end wet/dry Panasonic shaver about 12 years ago. It served me very well, having replaced the heads about every three or four years only. Recently, it delayed starting for about 6 seconds, after pushing the "on" button. It still works. Nevertheless, I then began researching on the WEB new shavers from many top models and manufacturers. The ES-LV81-K I purchased online from the factory store was the highest rated and now I have used it daily for nearly two weeks, IT HAS MORE THAN LIVED UP TO ITS REPUTATION for being the very best shaver. It is very light to hold and works quickly, giving a consistent closeness superior to even a razor shave, sliding without any abrasion into every nook and cranny of my face and neck. Consequently, I have just emailed every friend in my address book to encourage them to buy this razor, whether or not their old razor is still working well. This razor is a marvel or design and effectiveness, and the price is super reasonable for its quality, efficiency and pure satisfaction. Thank you Panasonic for a supreme product. 73 year old man from Buffalo NY. August 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Panasonic shaver buyer I never used to think about Panasonic when buying an electric razor. I have been using electric shavers for about 40 years, switching between Braun and Norelco. I recently purchased a replacement head for my Norelco that was worse than the head I replaced. When I called they refused to replace it, rather offered me a 15% off coupon on any purchase from Norelco online. Good bye Norelco! I then decided to try something new, the Panasonic and could not be much happier. August 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Shaver This is the fourth Panosonic electric shaver purchased not because of failures but for family members they are so good and I just upgraded to this five blade system with auto clean for myself basically got an email sale and the price was to good not to, the others are ES LA63 models I will hold on to mine and pass it along eventually and so far I like the five blade even better. Got the other two for my father and son. Some say they are pricey but all I have to say check out others prices and you get what you pay for but keep your eyes open and can catch them on sale so anyway I had tried different brands of shavers and happened up on my first Panasonic on a Black Friday sale it's been a few years but all I know is I'm glad I tried that first Panasonic because it is the first electric razor that has worked for me and I wouldn't have purchased four for myself and for family.
